Testimonial for Lympne Castle Wedding Photographer Catherine Hill
Tim & Stephanie

We used Catherine’s services at our wedding in July at Lympne Castle.

She beautifully captured the essence of the day, managing to take so many spontaneous pictures of our guests but also documenting all the smaller details.

Catherine was very professional, discreet and efficient on the day. She was very prompt to turn around the pictures after the wedding. She also spent time discussing our requirements and talking through our plans ahead of the big day so she could deliver exactly what we expected. And she did!

I would highly recommend her services.

We first met Catherine at a wedding open day at our eventual venue, it become apparent very early on in comparison to the other photographers that we wanted to use Catherine for the big day. From that first meeting Catherine was extremely approachable, very knowledgeable and her work simply stood out in terms of its quality. We booked her there and then.

Her communication throughout the whole process has been thorough, we have conversed in email, FaceTime and in person in the build up to the wedding and also in the aftercare, this level of communication is greatly appreciated as there are a whole lot of questions that come up during the process, Catherine is very experienced and knew the answers to all our questions.

Throughout the engagement shoot and the wedding day itself Catherine made us feel at ease, which was quite remarkable seeing as both myself and my wife are not the greatest fans of being photographed! We pretty much let Catherine decide what was best for us in terms of the photographs and how they are set up and we think this was the best approach.

It has been a real pleasure getting to know Catherine and we cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you for everything.

Catherine was recommended to us through a friend and she didn’t disappoint. She was professional, helpful and friendly from our first contact through to our wedding day. Catherine listened to what we wanted and delivered some exceptional photographs which we are thrilled with and all of our guests commented on how helpful, friendly and knowledgable she was. Thank you Catherine, we are extremely grateful!

Testimonial for Helen and Paul's Hever Castle Kent Wedding Photography
Helen & Paul

Catherine was an absolute delight to work with and was always on hand to answer any queries and to put us at ease.

We were both very fussy when it comes to photography so choosing the right photographer was quite a challenge. When we came across Catherine we instantly fell in love with her style and knew she was the one we wanted to capture our special day.

We found the engagement shoot very helpful as my husband is a little awkward in front of a camera. She was great on the day was constantly on the move trying to capture all the elements of our jam packed day. There was no line up after line up of staged photos thank god! She took on board all the images that we asked her to take as well.

We couldn’t be happier with our photos.

Catherine has been brilliant from start to finish. She saw us at late notice one Sunday and we were blown away with her work. She was exactly what we were looking for in terms of how we wanted her to shoot our wedding. Regardless of what our query was she was always there to help and make suggestions, even putting us in touch with an amazing videographer. We had an engagement shoot which was fantastic and really helped us relax with her and the camera. Come the wedding day she was brilliant and we hardly noticed her. The photos we have are incredible and we are so pleased we chose Catherine. We are just finalising our album with her now and she is still giving us the same attention as she did at the start. Thank you Catherine.

Catherine was so wonderfully friendly and genuine – really made us feel at ease both in discussing the plans for the day (for which she had many very helpful tips) to the day itself, which helped in calming any nerves and staying upbeat despite the rain. She was incredibly professional and efficient in getting the group shots done so we not only have lovely ‘family album’ type shots but also plenty of relaxed shots of all of our guests which really captured the essence of the day. Would highly recommend.

Sarah & Craig's Testimonial for their Secret Garden Wedding Photography
Sarah & Craig

Trying to find the right photographer for your wedding is quite a daunting prospect as you not only want to be able to capture all of the special moments of your big day, but you also want them to be a keep sake to look back on for years to come. So the pressure to get it right was huge and we didnt really know where to start, but as soon as we found Catherine we knew that we had found exactly what we had been looking for! Catherine had such a warm, helpful and non-obtrusive approach and we felt that she would fit in to our wedding without us feeling awkward in front of the camera and without us really noticing that there was photographer present during all of the special moments throughout the day. On the lead up to our wedding Catherine was always quick to respond to emails and we never felt like a pushy bride or groom, but always felt that she genuinely cared about us and our experience. During our wedding day we had a few of the organised photos with family, but the best ones were when we didn’t even notice that Catherine was there and she managed to capture all of the happiness of the day. We absolutely can’t thank Catherine enough for out amazing photos and would recommend her to any couple who are looking for a photographer for their special day.

Chris & Debs

We chose Catherine based on the quality and style of the pictures in the gallery on her website. From the beginning at the engagement shoot, she was very friendly, helpful and relaxed which helped us to relax too in front of the camera. On our wedding day she remained cool and professional, despite the weather and unexpected time delays conspiring against her. As a result, she stayed well beyond the time she was scheduled to finish, and gave us exactly the relaxed and casual style of photos we were looking for.

We are thrilled with our photographs and would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

From start to finish we were provided with an extremely high quality service. From an initial meeting we were impressed with Catherine’s previous work which was clearly of a high standard. Communication was fantastic with any questions/queries answered promptly which was a great reassurance to us on the build up to the wedding.

On the day Catherine ensured that all of our specific requests were met and had a calm approach. Having received the completed album- we could not be happier, the quality is superb.

We would highly recommend Catherine for any wedding not just for her artistic skills but for her professionalism and warm manor.

Catherine recently photographed my wedding in London. What a star! The service received throughout was exceptional, with helpful tips not only for photography purposes but with the timing of the day as well. Her experience was invaluable.

The quality of the photographs we received was wonderful. It was just what we wanted. She captured every aspect of the day in a natural way, including many moments we were not aware of. It was a real joy to see.

We found choosing a photographer for our wedding a bit of a daunting task – there are so many out there to choose from! However from the first time we contacted Catherine we knew she was the photographer for us. She was professional and friendly throughout. We chose to have an engagement shoot and Catherine was excellent at making us feel relaxed in front of the camera. On our wedding day Catherine was brilliant – it was only when we saw the finished photos that we knew she was there for some parts of the day! Her natural style of photography was perfect for us.

The photographs of our day were fantastic and captured the day perfectly. Photographs are one of the few things from a wedding that will last a lifetime and thanks to Catherine we have some incredible photos to remember our wedding day. Every image is superb and we’ll have trouble narrowing them down to our favourites for an album.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Catherine, she really is fantastic value for money. A massive thank you to Catherine!!

From start to finish nothing was too much trouble for Catherine. We took a long time to choose a photographer for our wedding in May 2016. From the first email to the last she has been accommodating and there has never been a “No” answer!

Catherine’s nature style of photography was what we wanted, to capture us and our family on our special day. From the year of communication to the engagement shoot to finally the big day – we never had any doubt about our choice of photographer. Catherine put us at our ease, and my husband and I still laugh at the memories of nuzzling!!! We have the most amazing memories of our day and we have been so pleased we have commissioned Catherine to do Liam’s golf shoot. We now have a go to photographer whenever we want to capture more memories. Catherine is not the cheapest but what she provides you with is priceless so well worth the money, Thank you Catherine.

We found Catherine just by pure luck on a Google search of Kent photographers, and I am so glad we did! We first met Catherine for our engagement shoot at Whitstable beach, and although the weather wasn’t great on the day she managed to capture some amazing shots, we both felt so relaxed and comfortable not at all like we were posing for a photo shoot which is exactly what we wanted.

Catherine was very easy to get in touch with and always responded to us very quickly. We have some more amazing shots from our wedding day (which was a very wet day) but Catherine again managed to capture our day perfectly and we are so happy with all of our photos, we don’t have enough room around the house for them all! We would 100% recommend Catherine to anyone!

We are so glad that we came across Catherine’s website when searching for a photographer as we couldn’t be happier with our images. As soon as we met Catherine in our initial meeting and looking over her previous work, we knew that we wanted her to photograph our big day. Her relaxed and natural style was exactly what we were after.

Catherine is very professional but at the same time extremely friendly and made both of us feel so relaxed in the lead up to the wedding and on our big day. The quality of the photos are amazing and it has captured everything we wanted and more. We are extremely happy with our photos and would highly recommend Catherine to anyone.

We were delighted with our choice of Catherine as our wedding photographer. She was very friendly and organised. Her photos were very good and we were extremely happy with all of them. The album arrived and looks great, we also received a usb stick with all of the photos so we could share them with family and get extra prints done.

Natasha & Martin

I chose Catherine as our photographer and I am so pleased that I did. Catherine took absolutely stunning shots of our Christmas Wedding December 2015 at Lympne Castle. I challenged Catherine with group sparkler night shots but nothing was too much trouble. She really is a wonderful photographer. Many Thanks.

Natasha & Martin
Katy & Matt

When searching for a photographer for our wedding it took us a long time to decide but after meeting Catherine and viewing her previous work nobody else compared. For two very camera shy people she was wonderful, warm and put us at ease. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and make us feel more comfortable in front of the camera. 
Catherine truly is an inspirational photographer who captures the most beautiful shots and she has an eye for noticing small details. During the day Catherine had the most wonderfully warm and relaxed presence and all of our guests were made to feel comfortable. She managed to capture the most beautiful sunset shots which we will truly treasure forever.

When the album arrived we were delighted with the quality, composition and the variation of all the shots taken. It was so difficult to decide the pictures for our album as there were so many wonderful photographs to pick from. 
We really cannot thank Catherine enough for all her hard work, ease of communication and professionalism and would highly recommend her to anyone else.

A massive massive thank you to Catherine for agreeing to cover our wedding and for producing such a beautiful set of photographs!
As soon as we met Catherine last year we knew we wanted her to cover our wedding. Her portfolio of images was stunning and she was so relaxed and friendly that we knew that we could trust her to capture our wedding in just the way we wanted.

Catherine candidly captured all the key moments and the exuberance and joy on the faces of our families and friends as they took part in the various different aspects of the wedding, so thank you very much for that. 
We would not hesitate to recommend Catherine to anyone and are so pleased to have been able to share our wedding experience with her.

Catherine is a real pro with a great eye for detail.

She made us both feel very relaxed on the day and captured some amazing shots of our wedding. We wanted to keep it quite natural and we’re so pleased with how she portrayed our day.
I’d highly recommend Catherine for service, quality and value for money – and we had our photos within 6 weeks.

Thank you so much Catherine.

Having worked within the photography field, I had been familiar with (and a fan of) Catherine’s work for a while. So, when my other half popped the question in August last year, Catherine was the first person I got in touch with, after the obligatory informing of the family members! :).

The reason we loved Catherine’s work was her ability to catch ‘the moment’, while not compromising on quality and composition, and when our images arrived a few weeks after our special day – we were certainly not disappointed. Catherine captured the spirit of the day beautifully, and provided us with a collection of images that were a perfect mix of ‘formal’ photo’s and the natural spontaneous shots that give you a great feel of the day. We knew that on the day we could rely on Catherine to do what she does best.

In addition to this, Catherine is a great person to work with, professional with the personal touch!

Rowan & Adam

We couldn’t be happier to have chosen Catherine as our wedding photographer. Not only was she the most wonderfully calming and warm presence, making us feel completely relaxed and comfortable throughout the day, she’s also a true professional – I barely noticed her, and yet we have an incredible and thorough record of every part of the day. When the photos arrived we were absolutely blown away, and had a wonderful time re-living the whole day over and over (and over) again! The only difficulty we’re likely to have will be in putting an album together as it will involve picking our favourite photos – a difficult task simply because they’re all so wonderful! Any expectations we might have had were so far exceeded – We couldn’t ask for a more beautiful record of our big day and we just can’t thank Catherine enough for that.

We loved getting to know Catherine for our June wedding. She has a fantastic eye for detail, and captures and creates the most beautiful photos. We were looking for a photographer who could get a very informal natural style, capture our friends and family enjoying the day but at the same time create some truly memorable photos, and Catherine managed all of this. She braved the elements on our windy engagement shoot at the beach, and managed to capture all the special and different moments we put into our wedding to capture us as a couple. The engagement shoot was a big help, as on the wedding day we didn’t have to worry about how we were meant to act and pose in front of the camera, it made photos on the day itself much more natural. We are so happy with the finished results of the photos, and Catherine really did an excellent job on the day of being everywhere without people knowing she was even there!!

We are so happy that we chose Catherine to be our wedding photographer. Completely blown away by the photos as they are even better than we could have imagined. As well as the ‘standard’ wedding photos, Catherine has produced some beautifully creative shots which we are thrilled with. She is extremely professional but at the same time such an easy person to get along with. Lots of our guests commented on how lovely the photographer was!

We asked Catherine to photograph our wedding after seeing the photos she took at my best friend’s wedding the year before and were so pleased we did!

Catherine has a beautiful photographic style and we ended up with a fantastic portfolio of images from our day. She was also a pleasure to work with in the run-up to the wedding and a very calm presence on the day itself. We have been to so many weddings where the photographer is really intrusive and always in the way of the guests whereas Catherine was almost invisible to most of our guests and still captured some amazing moments.

Jamie & Liz
Julia & Mike

My parents have started making fun of the fact that every time we talk about Catherine, the word ‘amazing’ is regularly used, but it is true she really is. Catherine was the first supplier we booked for our wedding. We had seen her work online and absolutely loved the relaxed approach to the photography, capturing the real ‘moments’ and feeling of the day. Her attention to the details was also important to us; after all it is the details that make each wedding special and unique. 

Having a camera shy husband, it was important that we found a photographer that would not only produce fantastic results, but would also make him feel at ease on the day. We both knew after a first meeting with Catherine that she was the perfect fit for us. She listened to everything we said whilst offering helpful advice. The engagement shoot was also invaluable. We were both a little nervous beforehand but, in addition to ending up with some lovely pictures, we were both much more at ease ahead of the wedding as a result. 

Catherine was totally amazing on the wedding day. She brings an air of calm to the day and I barely even noticed she was there. We made last minute changes to the group shots and she put them together effortlessly. She worked tirelessly throughout the day and stayed well beyond the allotted time. We have just picked up our album and it is totally stunning. 

Catherine works so hard both before, during and after the day to make sure the photos and album are perfect. Nothing is too much for Catherine and it is clear she genuinely cares and wants to ensure she produces the best possible results. She has indeed provided us with an album that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. 

I would definitely recommend Catherine she is fantastic! I honestly do not have a single bad thing to say and I know she will not disappoint. The whole process was totally seamless. She was the best investment we made.

Catherine was brilliant from day one. Catherine is extremely easy to get on with which makes the whole experience easier whilst maintaining professionalism throughout. The engagement shoot we had was perfect to put us at ease and definitely recommended as it helped us to relax in front of the camera. We decided against having an album with the package we chose at first, but after seeing just how good the images are, we have changed our mind and will be asking Catherine to design one for us as her attention to detail really is that good. We barely noticed Catherine on the wedding day at all yet she managed to capture everything brilliantly. We are 2 very happy customers, thank you Catherine!!

After browsing photographers work online, 3 and a half years in advance of our wedding! I quickly short listed Catherine Hill Photography as one of my favourites. 3 years previous to our wedding we went to a wedding fair at The Old Kent Barn and there Catherine was. Such a lovely lady who I instantly felt at ease with, who also just presented the most beautiful albums and from then onwards my mind was made up and I didn’t look around at any other photographers work! Proceeding to book shortly after! From our initial meeting right through to the delivery of our wedding album Catherine has been fantastic and I couldnt recommend her highly enough! Catherine kept in contact regularly throughout the 3 years leading up to the wedding and has been very helpful in answering any questions very promptly in the lead up. 

On the day itself Catherine was very professional and we felt completely at ease. Even getting ready in a very busy dressing room Catherine wasn’t in the way and you would occasionally catch up popping up from or behind things taking shots! We are so pleased with all the lovely images, they really do tell a story of the whole day and capture the small details too. The process of selecting photos for our album was also very straightforward, the hardest bit being which ones to choose! I would have loved them all in the album!! Our album is just gorgeous and of such good quality too, you really do get what you pay for. Thank you ever so much Catherine for capturing our amazing day and we wish you all the best.

She was a pure perfectionist, she blended in with the guests and made everyone feel comfy and their were no awkward photo shots, we love the natural shots too. If you are looking for a photographer do not look any further, money well spent, thank you Catherine, thank you for capturing our special day!

Catherine was recommended to us by our wedding venue and she did not disappoint. From the first communications to the after wedding service we have been thoroughly happy. Catherine has always been very kind and patient with us, when I asked many questions before the big day. We opted to include the engagement shoot which we are very pleased we did. It was well worth it, as neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of the camera but Catherine put us both at ease.

On the big day Catherine fitted in perfectly. Most of the time people didn’t even realise she was there so she managed to get a lot of natural shots which is exactly what we wanted. The images are of a great quality and we are very happy with them. Catherine provided a quick turn around which was great.

We felt so lucky that Catherine was available to photograph our wedding so soon after Christmas. We wanted a photographer who was modern in their work and her clever use of the light we had on the day portrayed that she was a professional! Her communication with us was excellent, I cannot recommend her highly enough. . Her work speaks for itself.

Kate & Chris

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Catherine. She was so easy to talk to and listened to all of our ideas and did so well to make it all happen. She walked through muddy grass and braved the elements to get the shots we wanted at the Church, and we had seen a picture with a heart made from sparklers and had fully expected Catherine to superimpose one on a picture but she practiced and practiced until she was able to create it for real on the day and the effect was fantastic! 
Catherine managed to capture some really special moments, in particular the shocked looks during the best man’s speech and lots of pictures of very happy faces! Having to work against the fading light of a winter wedding, she did a great job of getting everyone where they were supposed to be and we have some great shots of family and friends throughout the day. 

We can’t thank Catherine enough for all her hard work and professionalism and we would certainly be happy to recommend her to anyone who asked.

Kathryn & Mike

We can’t recommend Catherine highly enough. The images she has captured of our wedding day are just outstanding.

We were very happy to have Catherine as our photographer for our wedding in Kent. She is very professional, efficient and client service oriented, yet very approachable and pleasant. She was super responsive over email, which was extremely helpful for us as we had to plan our wedding from Asia! Her photographs were beautiful and we were amazed with some of her creative shots. We really enjoyed having her part of our special day, but it doesn’t end there! Even after the wedding, she kept in close contact with us to ensure the photo albums arrive with quick turnaround and kept us posted on the progress on a regular basis. Highly recommend her for anyone looking for a great photographer. We would love to have her take more photos of us as we move on to different phases of our lives!

From the moment we started planning the wedding, we knew that the photography was a priority and so having a top photographer was a must. After doing lots of research and speaking to several people, we met with Catherine. It didn’t take us long to realise that Catherine was the one for us!

Catherine is very friendly and also extremely professional, a good mixture of qualities to have in the lead up and on the day. We have an engagement shoot with Catherine which helped us get to know her and how she works and also helped her to get to know us. It was a lot of fun and Catherine helped to make us at ease in front of the camera.
I think that my first words when I saw the photographs were ‘wow, wow, wow’! Catherine had worked subtly and efficiently on the day to make sure that she captured the real essence of our wedding. Not only did she do a great job capturing the ‘official’ shots and the main moments, but she also worked seamlessly to capture all the smaller but really important moments that really bring the wedding alive. We can look through the speech photographs for example and know exactly what was happening and it is so nice to be able to relive it all.
We were very impressed with Catherine local knowledge and her knowledge of natural lighting and sunset times which was clearly demonstrated in the amazing photographs she captured of us on Whitstable beach at sunset.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Catherine as I have already done to friends who are getting married. For us, the photography was very important and we made sure that we allowed for this in our budget and we can say it was definitely worth it.

Polly & Simon

We got married in September this year and are absolutely delighted with the photos that Catherine produced for us. Leading up to the wedding she was ever the professional, listened to our ideas and made suggestions which resulted in the most fabulous photos. Both myself and my husband are camera shy but the engagement shoot with Catherine really ensured we were comfortable. On the wedding day itself several of our guests have commented that they didn’t notice Catherine at all which is a real compliment to her etiquette as a photographer, to fade into the background but capture the most personal moments and leave you with magic memories of your special day. Highly recommended.

From the first meeting with Catherine my husband and I knew we would like her to capture our special day. Her photography portfolios looked amazing and she also put us both at ease which was important for us. Having met with a couple of photographers at different wedding fairs all offering the usual posed pictures and having been to friends weddings where people were rushed along and shouted instructions at we new we were lucky to have found a true and talented professional. Catherine offers an engagement shoot which is brilliant as it helps you to see how she works and also put you at ease- a real bonus!

Communication is also something Catherine excels at, once booked you are still guaranteed regular contact should you want to ask any questions, and we had many! On the day it was like having a close friend capturing it with all my family commenting on how unobtrusive Catherine was, no five hours away from family and friends with staged photographs, just a couple of set ones and then Catherine will work with the light and surroundings to make sure that when you have some personal shots that the time is right so that most of your day is photographed discreetly. The results have been fantastic, we can’t stop looking at the album and everyone that visits comments on not just the quality of the images but how Catherine puts the them together so you look through the memory’s as your own storybook of your day-truly magical and this is coming from someone whom hates having their photograph taken!

If we are fortunate enough to have our own family we know who we will be in contact with to get some more special pictures.

Katy & Bedros

Catherine is an amazing photographer, she captured our wedding recently and all of our guests commented on how warm, wonderful and friendly she is, they told me how refreshing it was to have a photographer that not only smiled all day, showing clearly that she is loving her profession, but how she caught everything perfectly, we couldn’t have taken a better shot ourselves. Catherine is worth every penny and her weight in gold. Complete star! :D.

Trevor & Rosie

We found Catherine’s website on the internet after extensive searching and knew immediately that she captured the exact feel and look of the photographs we wanted for our wedding.

From meeting Catherine for the first time to collecting our album has been such a lovely experience. On our pre-wedding shoot she really put us both at ease in front of the camera as neither of us particularly like having our photo taken. She really engages with you and gets a feel for what you are like so you don’t feel awkward and the images look really natural.

On our wedding day she captured the whole day perfectly and sometimes I didn’t even know she was there but her attention to detail and composition is amazing.
We had trouble picking from so many images but after lots of patience and help from Catherine we have an absolutely beautiful album that flows through our day perfectly.

We would definitely recommend Catherine to anyone.

Trevor & Rosie
Michael and Amanda

With many many aspects to planning the ‘perfect’ wedding it is very often easy to overlook the importance of capturing the day how you want it captured. Not all photographers are created equal.

Catherine was one of a few professional photographers we ‘interviewed’. It was very apparent that she has a passion for what she does, and her style of photography matched how we wanted to remember the day.

And we could not have been happier with the result. The entire process was simple, logical, and put us at ease. Never rushed, never hurried. On the day Catherine was very much part of the event – like having an extra guest. One that you would invite again. After the event, we were amazed at the quality of the images captured and found it very difficult to select just a few photos for the album. As ever Catherine helpfully offered a creative hand, and we have the most amazing memories from the day captured in a beautiful album.

Although not the cheapest, this is a case of you get what you pay for, and I know many hours go in to producing an album of the quality we received. Her photos resulted in our wedding getting a spot in a Wedding Magazine – which was the icing on the wedding cake.

Catherine helped to make our wedding truly unforgettable with her wonderful pictures! After extensively researching into wedding photographers, we knew we had found what we were looking for straight away when we came across Catherine’s website. We were looking for natural, of the moment shots for our special day, and Catherine’s style was just right.

We would recommend Catherine without hesitation to anyone looking for a photographer with a client focussed, flexible attitude and top class skills! The experience from start to finish was great!

It was Catherine’s reportage style of work that first attracted us as we did not want posed images, more capturing the natural moments in time throughout the day; and we are so happy with outcome. Her calm approach and personable nature meant that we had a relaxed day. Previously we had arranged with Catherine any specific photos we wanted and she was able to engage with, and organise, our party to capture so many amazing photos. When researching different photographers, we stumbled across two images, both in the exact same location (wedding venue) but by two different photographers, one of which was Catherine. Though the two photos were essentially the same but with different people, Catherine’s image came alive; and was worlds apart from the other. It is not possible for me to describe the difference, other than Catherine’s was a work of art; the balance of light, the framing, the emotion – it was everything you would want in a wedding photo and she has created a stunning collection of images.

We used Catherine for our wedding in April 2013. I first contacted her on recommendation from a friend and have been so happy with every element of her service. Her photo’s speak for themselves, they are beautiful, detailed and captured our day perfectly. She is always available when ever I’ve had requests and is very flexible. This was one area of my wedding preparations which were stress free.

We first met Catherine at my brothers wedding back in April 2010, and were more than impressed with not just her final product, but her fantastic personality. Along with her professionalism, she was also fun to work with, making even the most camera shy people enjoy their photo being taken.

2 years later, we, ourselves got engaged. We didn’t need to think twice about who we wanted to use as our photographer. Our decision was confirmed as a good one, when we met Catherine for our engagement shoot, giving us the natural shots that we had in mind.

We have since received our photos and were more than impressed!! She captured the most special moments, from the boys enjoying their breakfast, to the girls getting ready, right up to our first dance. We are still trying to whittle down our photos to fit in our album!

Catherine photographed our wedding in Jersey in the Summer. The whole process, from start to finish, was really exceptional. Not only did she really put us at ease, which made for better photos, her choice of locations and different imagery was truly inspired. We have an astonishing number of really beautiful wedding photographs, which has also been remarked upon by family and friends. In fact, one of our guests rang her up afterwards to tell her how talented she thought she was. We feel very lucky to have been able to book her.

Having met several other photographers while planning our wedding, we knew as soon as we met Catherine that she was the person to shoot our wedding at The Old Kent Barn in August. Her kind and friendly personality immediately put everyone at their ease, even a very nervous bridal party. She blended into the crowd at the reception and captured very relaxed, natural photos of our guests, which give a real feel for the atmosphere of the day. At no point was she intrusive and throughout the day she went above and beyond our expectations resulting in an amazing set of photos that we will treasure forever.

We would highly recommend her to anyone without a moment’s hesitation.

We were really pleased we chose Catherine to photograph our Wedding at Whitstable Castle. She instantly made us feel at ease and the engagement shoot made us relax in front of the camera.

On the day Catherine was very professional and discreet, there was no pressure and we did not feel we were ‘on show’ all day. A lot of the images Catherine took were of guests were natural shots rather than posed and she felt like one of our guests. 

Having Catherine with me whilst getting ready and before walking down the aisle helped keep my nerves under control – Big thank you for that. 

We would happily recommend Catherine to anyone.

We are thrilled we chose Catherine to capture our wedding day. From our initial meeting all the way through to seeing our photographs, Catherine has been friendly, creative and professional.

When we first met Catherine she immediately made us feel at ease with her and we could see she has a passion and a talent for what she does.
We had an engagement shoot included in our package which was really worthwhile. It gave us an opportunity for us to get to know Catherine and how she works. Catherine gently showed us how some shots work best which gave us some good ideas on our wedding day on how to stand etc. This really helped to save time on the wedding day as we had already been through the best ways to stand and we were used to the camera.
On the wedding day Catherine was very subtle, she blended in and captured the story of our day beautifully. She took all the photos we asked for and more, without stopping our day.

We absolutely love our photos. We will remember our special day forever and have beautiful photographs to help treasure those memories.

Tim and I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Catherine to anyone looking for a wedding photographer to share in their special day. We knew from the day we met Catherine at a wedding fair that she would be perfect to work with in the run up to, and on, our wedding day back in August 2012. Her calm, professional and friendly nature meant she always made us feel at ease, and her ability to adapt to the situations and characters (mine being one of them!) was seamless. Her devotion to her work and the time she set aside to go through albums, pricing, timings, pre-shoots and album production is just amazing and truly exceptional value for money. We are so pleased that she was able to capture our day, and the resulting images are just breathtaking. We look forward to Catherine capturing more of our happy memories as we journey along our married life together.

From the first point of contact Catherine was attentive, helpful and totally bespoke the package to our needs. She was not the cheapest that we met but undoubtedly excelled in terms of service and quality. We hardly new she was there on the day and some of the natural shots she took were unbelievably good. The feedback we have had from family and guests is overwhelming, and I have just booked her for my daughters wedding.

We spent a long time planning our wedding and looking for the right photographer to share in our special day. When we came across Catherine’s website, we were instantly impressed by her natural style and after our initial meeting we knew she was perfect for us.

On the day Catherine was incredible – she made it effortless. We feel that Catherine was not just a photographer, but a special part of our day. Our album is stunning and our pictures tell an amazing story, full of love and happiness.   All of our friends and family loved her – so much so she has now been booked by our bridesmaid for her wedding in September!

We would absolutely recommend Catherine for anyone who is looking for a special photographer – she is passionate about her work and in capturing those beautiful moments that truly reflect who you are as a couple.

We met Catherine at a wedding fayre and instantly fell in love with her natural, relaxed photographs. From our first meeting on, Catherine spent time listening to what we wanted and advising us based on her great experience. The engagement shoot was invaluable and she certainly put us at ease before the big day. On our wedding day Catherine blended in perfectly, always there when we needed her but never too prominent. The online system for sharing the photos and compiling the album is brilliant – we just can’t wait for the album now!

We chose Catherine Hill Photography to shoot at our wedding in September 2012. Whilst arranging our wedding, we had a few recommendations from friends for photographers in the area, but none lived up to the standard of an album we saw when looking round our wedding venue. The album belonged to ‘Catherine Hill Photography’. We contacted Catherine expecting she’d be out of our budget or unavailable. To our surprise, Catherine was very competitive and available! And booking Catherine was a brilliant move. We are so happy with the final outcome. We received an entirely personal service and nothing was too much trouble. We have spent hours with Catherine, proving that for her, the wedding day shoot is just a small part of the hard work she puts in behind the scenes that we don’t see.
Two pieces of advice when looking for a photographer.
1) When visiting a photographer, look at several albums from start to finish to ensure they’re not just showing you their best shots. We saw countless albums which Catherine had put together and the quality was exceptional.
2)Remember, when the wedding day is over, you’re left with two things, the rings and the photos! So make sure you choose a photographer who can provide the best album for your budget.
Thank you Catherine :).

Asking Catherine to do our wedding photos was one of the best decisions of our entire wedding. From our first meeting with Catherine, to the pre-wedding shoot, the wedding itself and the album design she was friendly, accommodating and professional, everything has been of the highest quality. We really appreciated that Catherine took the time to visit both the church and the venue beforehand, as well familiarizing herself with all the important people who would be there on the day. All the details were covered and my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that we would have wonderful photos to look back on for the rest of our marriage.

Catherine was recommended to us by a friend, and we are so glad we hired her as our photographer for our wedding. She is very personable and instantly made us feel comfortable with her and in front of the camera. She also worked incredibly hard, making sure she knew what we liked and what our venue offered in the way of photo opportunities, all before the actual wedding day. On the day she constantly worked but in such a relaxed way, having fun and laughing along with us; she was like a very welcome guest.

Neil and I  could not be happier that we chose Catherine to be our photographer on our special day. From the very start Catherine listened to all of our ideas and the kind of look we were after. Working with her on the day was fun and very relaxed. The images she managed to capture are magical and exactly what we hoped for. We now have a very special collection that we will be able to look back on in years to come that will take us straight back to the day we got married.

We cannot sufficiently express how thankful we are that we chose Catherine to take the photographs on our wedding day. Her way of working, to put us at ease and enable us to look our best, was faultless. She could not have been more understanding and helpful to a couple in their sixties who were not self-assured about their appearance and nerves on the day!

Catherine worked so unobtrusively that, apart from the family group poses, no-one realised they were being photographed. This resulted in very natural pictures which reflected emotions, joy and action, which was exactly what we hoped for.

Looking at the beautiful pictures Catherine produced enabled us to relive the day and we are so happy we will have these as a reminder of a very special day.

Catherine photographed our May 2013 wedding at Preston Court near Canterbury, and she was a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. Many of our guests have complimented Catherine on her discreet approach on the day which made everyone feel at ease.

She really captured the spirit and laughter with beautiful shots of the finer details. Our stunning album will be cherished for many years to come and we’d highly recommend her. Thank you!

Catherine was our wedding photographer in July 2011 at Lympne Castle in Kent. The images of our wedding day are just beautiful and capture so many special moments.

We immediately liked Catherine’s style of photography as soon as we saw some of the images on her website. Her images have a very romantic, natural and relaxed feel to them – just what we were after. It was a pleasure working with Catherine and getting to know her in the build up to the wedding and after. She was so helpful, friendly and approachable throughout.

We felt very relaxed in front of the camera on the big day which was thanks to Catherine’s relaxed style and our pre-we shoot. A wedding must!

The images of our day are perfect and keep the memory of our wedding alive and will be treasured for many years to come.

The warmth and subtleness of the photo’s in our wedding album are a testimony and reflection of Catherine’s natural warm personality which shone through on our wedding day. She blended in with our guests without even knowing she was around. Thank you so much for keeping the memories of our special day with us for ever.

We were lucky enough to have Catherine at our wedding in July 2013 and from start to finish she was wonderful. Not living locally, Catherine was easy to get in contact with and worked around us and our plans for our big day.

She made us feel at ease which is a really important factor when you are going to be photographed! Many of our guests commented on how friendly and professional she was on the day also.

We are over the moon with our photographs and Catherine will come highly recommended to our family and friends.

We spent several months researching different photographers for our wedding in August this year – representing a wide range of prices / styles etc, so when we met Catherine at her studio for a first introductory meeting and look through her portfolio, we knew straight away that we’d found the one! From the minute we met Catherine, she immediately put us at ease and was happy to answer all manner of questions that we had. On top of this, the albums that Catherine uses are simply stunning and extremely high quality. Looking through her sample albums, we knew that Catherine’s reportage style was exactly what we were looking for.

The pre-shoot was a great opportunity to get used to being photographed together and to get to know Catherine a bit more too. On top of which, we also have some gorgeous images, capturing some lovely memories of the shoot.

On our wedding day, Catherine was simply brilliant. I guess what makes her stand out from a lot of other photographers is her genuine interest in capturing and re-telling your story. She isn’t one of those photographers who is clock watching to see if you’ve had your allocated 4 hours yet, and she’s a complete professional with it too.

We’re currently in the middle of selecting the all important images for our album and it’s lovely re-living it all again. Catherine captured everything in such a natural way – it was exactly what we were looking for and we couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Catherine photographed our wedding and a pre-wedding shoot July 2011. The wedding took place at the Pines Calyx in St Margaret’s Bay, Kent. We found her easy to work with, very professional and an exceptionally talented photographer. She performed well above our expectations and are delighted with the results.

We have been particularly impressed with the attention to detail throughout the wedding day and also prior to the wedding ie reconnaissance into suitable photographs. The photos have been taken from an intelligent and creatively unique perspective and help capture the events of the wedding perfectly.

Through the whole process we have come to highly value her knowledge and experience, from a relaxed and friendly manner to a consultative and helpful approach in guiding us to great stress free results.

Our day went by so fast that we hardly remember all of it. These pictures are amazing and capture real intimate moments that we almost missed in the excitement of it all… and of course captured the lovely rain… which seems to be a theme in all things wedding related for us!

Thank you so much for being so lovely through the whole process and providing us with such wonderful reminders of our memories to treasure.

Catherine was the photographer at our wedding in Canterbury in September 2010. We felt Catherine captured the feel of our wedding perfectly. She caught natural, magical moments throughout the day, which really told the story of the wedding as it unfolded. She was so friendly and professional throughout the whole process, we couldn’t be happier with our choice of photographer, and the end result of the album was spectacular. We would definitely recommend Catherine to friends and family looking for a photographer.

Catherine was our wedding photographer in July 2011 and she did a fantastic job. Catherine is so easy to get on with and a pleasure to work with. She is able to put you at ease and forget she is there. This is helped by the pre-wedding shoot and her ability to get lost in the crowd at the wedding. She has her own fantastic style but is willing to do what you want her to. Due to this the outcome is nothing short of spectacular and will be cherished forever. The must-have photographer!

Before our wedding I wasn’t keen on having my photo taken so I thought that having a woman photographer would make me feel more at ease. I was looking on the internet and came across Catherine’s website. I loved the photos on the website so contacted Catherine immediately. Small world but it turned out that Catherine was the cousin of my hairdresser!

Our pre wedding shoot was the perfect way to get to know Catherine and after a few shoots we felt at ease. Our wedding day was amazing and Catherine captured every minute – its wonderful to keep looking at our ‘wedding day story’ in pictures as the day was over so quickly.

Our wedding photography was everything we could have hoped for with a cherry on the top!

We first met Catherine at a wedding fair in Jersey and were impressed by her work.

We had several meetings and lots of communication prior to our pre wedding shoot, which was on the beach and great fun, which also helped us get used to the camera. Catherine was great, providing sunnies and lip gloss for make up repairs, and her personality and attitude sat really well with us. She also took fab photos of Lenny our dog who was the ring bearer!

During our wedding day she worked tirelessly, visiting my house twice in the morning and also Richies mums house. To be honest we forgot Catherine was at the wedding, which means she did her job well!

Catherine was really prompt in sending us all the photos taken and it was lovely to see them so soon after our special day. Our album came together really easily and only needed a few minor tweaks as Catherine seemed to have an insight as to exactly what we wanted.

We’d planned to save money by getting our friends to take the wedding photos, but are so glad we followed up the recommendation of the vicar at our wedding at Lympne Castle to seek out Catherine.

Catherine stood out from other photographers by emphasising the importance of meeting her beforehand, and it meant that we felt more at ease with her and used to her style by the time the big day rolled around.

That comes across in the pictures of the day, which look very natural. We hardly noticed Catherine during the day but when we needed ordering around she did it perfectly! Catherine is a pleasure to deal with and we definitely made the right decision.

One of the most important part of the wedding for us was the photography as I am a hopeless romantic and photographs hold so many memories and feelings.

I looked at quite a few wedding photographers initially but as soon as I saw the photo’s that Catherine had taken, I instantly knew that she was the person that i wanted to ask to capture the memories of our special day.

Catherine’s passion for photography shines through and shows in her photo’s that she takes. Catherine was extremely professional, approachable and always very helpful. She went beyond what I would except from a photographer and when the final album came through I was blown away by how fantastic it was. The money was well worth spending as Catherine put in a lot of additional work for the pre-wed shoots, meeting at venues prior, spending time discussing albums and made changes to any of the pictures until we were 100% satisfied am so glad I chose Catherine and would definitely recommend her if you want fantastic pictures and a really lovely, warm and professional person to work with. Thank you!
